(D) For the development of Bengal

Correct Answer : To weaken the growth of Nationalism in Bengal
Question Asked : UP Lower Sub. (Pre) 1998
Explanation : “The Partition of Bengal, said Lord Curzon, was a mere readjustment of administrative boundaries.” The argument advocated for the partition was that it would improve the administration of the two provinces. The main motive was to strike at the roots of Bengali Nationalism which was growing in solidarity form. At that time Bengal was considered to be “the nerve-centre” of Indian Nationalism. Curzon decided to ruin the new spirit by dividing the politically advanced communities into separate provinces.
